Rwanda dismissed charges levelled in a report by U.N.-appointed experts that it supported rebels in neighbouring Burundi up until early 2016, saying the authors were trying to stir up trouble in the region.



“People who write these could be mobilized to be useful to address rather than exacerbate countries problems,” Rwandan President Paul Kagame told a news conference, according to the presidency’s Twitter account.
“The most important thing for Burundi is to look at their problem as their own not as a problem that originated elsewhere,” he was quoted as saying.
